    Hello I am having teh same problem, my cartridges are empty, first I get E5, later E2 and the printer keeps flashing the E2 error code, the on/off lights blinks green, the a4 plain paper light is green. the orange error lights is flashing en teh b en c light also. I have resetted the inkt level indicator, but I'm still not able to scan. I don't want to buy new cartridges yet, I have to be sure the MP150 is o.k.

I replaced the color ink cartridge. Now there is an "E" flashing alternately with a "5". The alarm light is on steadily, and the black ink and color ink lights are flashing. How do I...


E5 is a Cartridge cannot be recognized error.
Reinstalling the cartridge could clear the alarm.
If this does not work,
Removed both ink cartridges.
Turn off printer and unplug fron electrical outlet.
Wait at least 5 minutes.
This will let the printer reset itself.
Plug printer back in and turn on.
Printer will cycle and an E5 will appear.
Installed back ink cartridges.

Countinuosly i am getting E5 error on my canon printer while scanning the document


E5 is the ink cartridges are not installed or non supported ink.This mean if you have both cartridges in printer one or both are failed.You can't scan, because scanner and printer are connected together and you can use the scanner only if printer is initialized.In your case this is not so.Check print cartridges and replace first color, if not help replace and black.

E5 error


HI ...

This error comes in when the cartridge is not installed correct ... I would suggest you remove and then re-install the cartridge using the below steps:

Removing Ink Cartridges:
  1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

  2. Press down on the semi-circular tab to release the cartridge and then remove it.


    Note: Handle the ink cartridges carefully to avoid staining clothes and surrounding work area.

  3. Remove and replace each cartridge individually. Or, remove the second cartridge after the first has been removed.

    Note: Do not touch the gold electrical contacts or the print head nozzles after removing the protective tape.

Installing ink cartridges:
  1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

    Note: After confirming that the scanning unit support is fixed into position, release your hands.

  2. Insert the ink cartridge into the ink cartridge holder.- Black: the left slot- Color: the right slot

  3. Push up on the front of the cartridge until it locks into place. (A click sound will be heard when the cartridge is locked in place.)

  4. Confirm that the ink cartridges are installed properly.

    <1> The ink cartridge is not installed properly.

    <2> The ink cartridge is installed properly.

  5. Fold the scanning unit support and close the scanning unit (printer cover).

  6. Wait until the preparatory operation is complete; it takes about one to two minutes.
Please vote if this helps ... Cheers :)
